Warranty issue in CC licenses

2003-04-29 18:12:55 UTC

Dan Bricklin raises an interesting issue with the Creative Commons licenses.

The Creative Commons licenses say, in effect, "After checking, I guarantee no one will sue you if you copy my work, with some restrictions". What many casual webloggers really want to say is "I guarantee I won't sue you if you copy my work, with some restrictions".

This had completely escaped my attention (which illustrates how difficult it is to write IP licenses).
